One of the Greatest Comebacks in Pirates History



Yes, this post is a little bit late, but it still needs to be put up.

Saturday night's game, with Jason Michaels' game-winning home run (which you can see above. I'd hurry up, because Major League Baseball may take that video down soon) will go down as one of the greatest comebacks in Pittsburgh Pirates history. Greg Brown and Steve Blass going ballistic only adds to the greatness of the above video.

Myself and I Want To Fight Tom Brady were fortunate enough to be in the house, soaking it all in about 20 rows back from home plate. We saw horrible Pirates pitching and great Cardinals hitting (I guess those two kind of go hand in hand.) And we did not leave the game when it was 9-3, or 10-4, or 10-6. No, we stuck with this team because through the course of this season they have shown a propensity to fight back. This version of Buccos will battle until the end. That's what I like most about this team. They don't fold when adversity strikes. They rise up to the challenge. It's absolutely unfair that the starting pitching and bullpen put the offense in near impossible situations almost every night. But I can't say enough about how the offense has responded to those situations. Last night was only the latest case.
